Daily Bandcamp Album; Mountain Thrower by Mountain Thrower

"The world needs another rock band, and this loud and loose trio of southern gentlemen from Wilmington, North Carolina has filled the void. Mountain Thrower digs deep into the vibe of obscure seventies rock contributions with guitar-driven melodies, funky shuffle beats, and fatiguing bass volumes."

For those of us that are really into music, and I mean REALLY into music, we tend to divulge deep  into the underground and independent for music, well past the mainstream. After all, this blog is mostly that. For those of us into that type of music from the 60's and 70's, music in the hard/classic rock genre can tell you that lesser and barely known bands don't share the same sound as their mainstream counterparts. Listen to Bloodstock, Craig and Janney, Atomic Rooster and many others and you can tell that the sound is, well, different. They tend to offer a different feeling that you wouldn't get if you were to listen to The Who, Mountain, Foghat, etc. Mountain Thrower's self titled not only captures that 70's hard/classic rock sound from the 60's and 70's, they also capture that distinct sound that this isn't a mainstream album. That was the feeling I got when I listened to that before I even bothered to read the bio. This is grade A material here!
